Emo Wants the World to Respect Jersey Graffiti
Seeing loud and energetic pieces pull up on gleaming metal trains is a rare sight in the US nowadays. While painting trains is a concept born in The Bronx, these days it’s more ubiquitous in Europe and other countries outside the States. There are some heads still putting in low-key work here in the States, but most writers keep their flicks close and away from prying public eyes, since laws can be draconian and repercussions severe. Occasionally people post their own work online, but generally the scene is kept pretty quiet.

Whenever I travel, I like to pick one of the paintings or frames in my hotel room and vandalize the back side with my own drawing and put it back up on the wall. I just like the idea of someone at some point coming across it. In any case, here is the latest in my ritual. This one is dedicated to the super hot region of Punta Cana, DR.
Just a quick drawing while on a recent flight. A little shaky but I’m gonna blame that on the turbulence…ha!

Got a chance to get down at one of my favorite graff events, Jersey Fresh Jam in Trenton. Here’s a pic of what Mimik and I put together. Big ups to Leon Rainbow, Demer, Kasso and the whole Teracycle fan for for the spot and all your hard work on the event. Check it…
So the forecast for Saturday is Scattered Thunderstorms. We realize this and are going to proceed with Jersey Fresh Jam at it’s regularly scheduled day and time which is Saturday August 6th Noon- 7pm. This is partially because the forecast also calls for thunderstorms on our rain date. Set up for participating Artists and Vendors is 10am – 11:30 am. The block will closed at noon.
